Russ sent me and email today asking if I knew Highland High School and Sugar House Park used to be a Jail? Honestly, what kind of Ram does he think I am? I told him that is why our colors are black and white. And I also like the fact that I talk about it in the present tense, once a Ram always a Ram!
He did send me a really cool picture of the old Jail, and I thought I would share it with my fellow Rams, and anyone else who reads my blog and likes to learn about random Utah trivia.
p.s. my dad just sent me an email with a pretty cool story. i will just copy and paste it below.
"Just read your blog (don't know how to comment there) and thought I'd tell you an interesting little anecdote. Before my mission I worked at a smelter (melted down different kinds of metal and poured them into ingots) and one day we had a ton of old aluminum toilets to melt down. When I asked where in the heck they came from I was told the old Salt Lake City Jail that once stood where Sugarhouse park is now located.
How about that!"
pps. my dad is the cutest!
